Let It Bee

Sustainable, natural products,

made with help from our bees!

A range of 100% natural products

At Let It Bee, we use honey and beeswax to hand make products for ourselves, our friends and families, which we’re pleased to share with you.

We hope you like them!

Skincare Products

Our Let It Bee skincare products are naturally nourishing, harnessing the antiseptic and moisturising qualities of honey and beeswax.

100% natural, they are ideal for those with sensitive skin.

All our soaps, hand balms and lip balms are handmade in small batches, using honey and beeswax from our own bees in south Birmingham.

Bee-utiful Beeswax

Beeswax is a natural wax produced by worker bees in the hives of honeybees.

It has a pleasant honey aroma but no taste and is used in the food industry, as a film to wrap cheese for maturing or as a food additive to give shine to the products, making it perfect for our food wraps and snack bags.

Beeswax also makes great candles, which burn brightly and give off a delightful scent without the need for any added fragrance or toxins.

How do you move a honeybee colony?

How do you move a honeybee colony? Well with great care is the obvious response! Moving boxes each containing 10-15,000 stingy insects is a bit scary but if you plan ahead, and follow a few rules, it’s quite straight forward. Move them a very little, so 3 feet or 3...
